QualityConf 2015

I had an amazing time at QUALITYCONF. I will jump at any chance to sketchnote some great topics from engaging speakers, and QUALITYCONF did not disappoint. This DevFacto event happened from March 27 to 29 at Stone Ridge Mountain Resort in Canmore Alberta.

This post will collect my favorite sketchnotes from each session to provide a Coles Notes experience of the event. The format was 30 minute talks padded nicely with discussion and break time. It made for some fantastic sessions and some difficult sketchnoting. Ideas and concepts were coming faster than I could draw them, so they are a little rough around the edges.
